    It looks like Senator Rand Paul might have just dug up the emails that everyone’s been waiting for. He’s got his hands on a pile of them as part of his deep dive into how COVID started, and he spilled the beans on X. These aren’t just any old emails—they involve Peter Daszak and David Morens, Dr. Anthony Fauci’s right-hand man at the NIH. What’s the big deal? Well, they’re chatting about how samples from the Wuhan lab could unlock the genomes of over 700 coronaviruses. Here’s the kicker: Despite all the times Dr. Fauci has been grilled in Congress...
  • How the Government Used ‘Track F’ to Fund Censorship Tools: Report

    The Epoch Times ^ | 3/2/24 | Mark Tapscott
    Officials from the National Science Foundation tried to conceal the spending of millions of taxpayer dollars on research and development for artificial intelligence tools used to censor political speech and influence the outcome of elections, according to a new congressional report. The report looking into the National Science Foundation (NSF) is the latest addition to a growing body of evidence that critics claim shows federal officials—especially at the FBI and the CIA—are creating a “censorship-industrial complex” to monitor American public expression and suppress speech disfavored by the government. “In the name of combatting alleged misinformation regarding COVID-19 and the 2020...

    Video footage emerged on Tuesday showing the moment that a staffer for Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) was brutally stabbed in Democrat-controlled Washington, D.C. The Washington Post obtained the footage of Glynn Neal allegedly attacking Phillip Todd back in March after Todd left a restaurant with a friend. Todd and his friend were walking out of the frame of the video when the suspect charges in and tackles Todd to the ground and begins repeatedly stabbing him. “What the f***,” a voice on camera says before Todd’s friend rushes in to get the suspect off of him. The two men then...

You honest men are such a problem and such a headache. But we knew you'd slip sooner or later - and this is just what we wanted." "You seem to be pleased about it." "Don't I have good reason to be?" "But, after all, I did break one of your laws." "Well, what do you think they're for?" Dr. Ferris did not notice the sudden...

    As congressional Republicans increasingly clamor for a ban on the popular video-sharing app TikTok, at least one is speaking out against the idea: Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky. In an op-ed for the Louisville Courier Journal, Paul argued that seeking a ban on TikTok was not just bad policy, but bad politics. "Congressional Republicans have come up with a national strategy to permanently lose elections for a generation," he wrote. According to TikTok, the app now has 150 million active monthly users in the United States.

    The Republican senator wanted to make a point about America’s COVID policies compared to the rest of the world. On Thursday, Sen. Rand Paul wanted to know if the dean of Johns Hopkins School of Nursing was ‘pro-choice.’ ‘Are you pro-choice in regards to patients making individualized medical choices?” Paul asked Dr. Sarah Szanton. “Broadly, thank you, yes,” Szanton replied. Paul was beginning a larger discussion to note that other nations have enjoyed more medical freedoms than most Americans have had. “Are you aware that your university doesn’t allow choice with regard to vaccination, that you require all of your...
  • Bankman-Fried Would Fit in ‘Atlas Shrugged’

    WSJ Opinion ^ | Dec. 13, 2022 | Philip Grant
    Ayn Rand referred to the business and political masters (and clueless destroyers) of the economy as ‘looters.’ ... One guesses that Ayn Rand, author of the 1957 dystopian novel “Atlas Shrugged,” wouldn’t be surprised by our government-business partnerships and moral crusades. Sam Bankman-Fried would fit perfectly as a character in an “Atlas Shrugged” sequel. In Rand’s novel, a do-good industrialist collaborating with political managers of the economy opines, “It’s generally conceded that the free economy is now on trial. Unless it proves its social value and assumes its social responsibilities, the people won’t stand for it. If it doesn’t develop...

    "As the tunnel came closer, they saw, at the edge of the sky far to the south, in a void of space and rock, a spot of living fire twisting in the wind. They did not know what it was and did not care to learn. It is said that catastrophes are a matter of pure chance, and there were those who would have said that the passengers of the Comet were not guilty or responsible for the thing that happened to them. The man in Bedroom A, Car No. 1, was a professor of sociology who taught that individual...

    The New Atlas ^ | September 1, 2022 | Brian Berletic
    As far back as 2019, US Army-commissioned studies examined different means to provoke and antagonize Russia who they acknowledged sought to avoid conflict. However, they also warned that if Russia was pushed too far, it could trigger an escalation that would spiral out of Washington's control. Today we are watching this conflict unfold. Just how accurate was the study's predictions? References: RAND Corporation - Extending Russia (2019): https://www.rand.org/pubs/research_re...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told Fox News’s Dan Bongino he is forcing a vote in the next two weeks to end mask mandates on planes, noting leftist leaders are only suddenly lifting restrictions due to souring opinions, as “the science isn’t changing, but the polls sure are.” “But the interesting thing is that the Democrat governors are finally giving up on some of this stuff. Even D.C., the most Democrat city in the entire country, the mayor put on vaccine passports two weeks ago, put businesses — put restaurants out of business. Well, she’s already relinquished it,” Paul said.

    They really want to get your newborn inoculated before they leave the hospital.” Appearing on Hannity Friday night, Senator Rand Paul noted that COVID vaccine pushers are becoming more militant in their demands and efforts to force as many people as possible to take jabs. “You know, these people won’t be happy until they get your newborn,” Paul urged. “I mean, they really want to get your newborn inoculated before they leave the hospital. They’re going to restrict certain things. You know, they’re not going to dispense schooling. But they’re also going to try to get them before they leave...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Wednesday that Americans should “be afraid of your government” after Attorney General Merrick Garland announced that the FBI would probe a purported spike in threats to local school officials amid protests over mask mandates and the addition of critical race theory to curricula. “Moms at school boards are being told that they’re criminals, potential domestic terrorists, for the crime of dissent,” Paul told “Fox News Primetime,” “and I think criminalizing dissent is something that we should all be appalled with.” When host Ben Domenech asked Paul what he would say to Americans who are worried...

    Anecdotally, and entirely unscientifically, I think I've discovered one of the greatest motivating factors in the world: The desire to be left alone. I don't mean the desire to BE alone (though as an introvert, that's often the case) but to be LEFT alone. But politicians won't do that. They spend all their time making sure each and every one of us is on their radar, somehow. In fact, they've insured we can all be pegged as criminals. There are so many laws on the books, we can't help but break one or two every time we inhale. Statistics vary,...

    Sen. Rand Paul revealed Wednesday in a disclosure that was more than a year overdue that his wife in February 2020 bought up to $15,000 worth of shares in Gilead, a biotech company that brought to market the first drug designed to treat COVID-19. Paul’s mandatory filing with the Senate shows that his wife purchased between $1,000 and $15,000 worth of Gilead stock on Feb. 26, 2020. Gilead’s antiviral drug remdesivir became the first COVID-19 specific treatment to win an emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration less that three months after the purchase in May 2020.

    ..”If the public are bound to yield obedience to laws to which they cannot give their approbation, they are slaves to those who make such laws and enforce them.”.. ~Sam AdamsThe overwhelming majority of dictates around COVID-19 mitigation are not laws, they are rules created by un-elected bureaucrats. There was no debate; no input from representative government; and no option for the public to weigh-in on the decisions. All unilateral rules are arbitrary, and despite many proclamations to the contrary, they rely upon voluntary compliance. As soon as citizens no longer voluntarily comply, the term of the rules has expired....
